Re: “Fifth California Legalization 2016 Measure Filed

@miles

My source is public health data:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/f…

"This analysis suggests that at that time the number of joints/day was 1.68 for light users, 1.92 for weekly and more than weekly users, and 3.87 for daily/near-daily users. Based on a variety of considerations, the amount of marijuana in a typical joint is assumed to be 0.43 grams/joint."

So anywhere between .7 grams to 1.6 gram per day. Average of one gram makes math easier and is a good ballpark.

Re: “Berkeley Okays Fourth Dispensary, Free Weed

@BrandonReese: Pappas said they pretty much rubber-stamped it last night. But you can review the details of their selection process in the agenda's related documents. Here is the link: http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/Clerk/City_Co…

Re: “Medi-Pot Rules Advance in Assembly

Greg: "The bill would make [dispensaries] subject to the restrictions of the local jurisdiction in which the facility operates or proposes to operate."
So it would appear to cement the patchwork currently in place.

Re: “Death of a Pot Salesman?

John,

I know black market pot growers who were happy to go legit in Colorado, abide by the regs and pay their taxes, if that's what you mean.

Also, there is massive amounts of corrosive corruption at numerous government levels under the existing regime of Marijuana Prohibition.

I'd much prefer the legal version of such government corruption, which we call "lobbying".

all the best, dd

Re: “Fact: Cannabis Kills MRSA, Disrupts Prion Diseases

Agree with @ellena, consult a physician if you think you have MRSA, but also be an empowered, educated patient

Re: “Fact: Cannabis Kills MRSA, Disrupts Prion Diseases

@Reecie, yeah I believe cannabinoids can be applied topically in the form of a rub or cream
